The Moon

Here is the moon that was out on the night of October 12 2017 and the morning of October 13 2017.

For some reason I’ve wanted to take a lot of photo’s of the moon recently. At some point I might take a month and photograph the moon. I know there are/were other people who do take photographs of the moon over the course of the night or during a month, but I just want to give it a gander. Though I’m going to wait til I have a working car to do this, and to look for a good out-of-the-way spot with less light pollution to this small project.

Quarter Moon

Here is a photo of a Quarter Moon that I took this one evening in Arizona. It’s one of few photographs that I’ve taken of the Moon over the last four to six months.

As far as I know this it’s named a Quarter Moon; however, if it’s named differently please let me know and I’ll update this post.

Camera Lenses

I’ve been looking to expand my Canon Camera lenses collection for my Canon 60D camera. One type of lenses that I’m planning to get is an Macro lens. As for other types of lenses that I want to get to get are telephoto lenses and I know it comes down to personal preference. Since, majority of photographs that I would be taking would be outdoor type photographs.

Though, if there was a way to try before buying at a store to see if I like the lenses would be nice. But, I doubt that is possible to do, since I don’t constantly share photo’s that I’ve done and haven’t really been taken photo’s recently over the last year and half on my Canon camera.

It will be a while before I would actually buy a few lenses, cause I need to save up money to buy them and more larger SD cards. I would be using this time to choose the type of lenses and save up the money to buy them.

It’s going to be Quiet for Sometime to come on this site

Hello There

Just want to post an update about the site and I’ll be posting anything for a bit of time in part that I don’t have internet access at home anymore and for sometime to come. Plus, there are still a fair amount of photographs that I still need to go through before posting to this site. One of the images that I’ve already upload is the featured image on this post.

Also, I need to spend time looking for a job that I could enable to stuff with my life and to expand this site further.

Bye for now….

Duck Swimming to Shore

Here are two videos of a duck that swam to the shore that’s on my families property on a lake near Lake Tahoe. The duck seemed to expecting food and this took place on a late September evening in 2014 before colder weather had settled in for the season.

Having Friends after 30

The article and tweet below from Vox.com seems rather true in some ways for me anyway. Though, it is from a women’s perspective / point of view rather from a guy’s point of view and for some reason I could relate to a few parts of the article written.

Summer Solstice Moon

I took these photographs of the moon late at night on the night on (or before) of the Summer Solstice (June 20, 2016). It took a bit of time to adjust some settings of my camera to able to capture a clear series of photographs of the moon. It was one of those times I had one of those “Ah Ha” moments when I discovered how to do something different and its like bringing two puzzle pieces together.

For the longest time I wanted to take clear photographs of the Moon and I finally did. Now I know how which setting and dials on the camera to change to do this I’m going to try to capture other phases of the Moon.

In the past when I took photos at night there was enough light from street/parking lights that I didn’t need to change it before. I wasn’t able to photograph the moon when it was rising above the horizon.

Sharing a Tweet….

Below is a tweet that I wrote on Twitter and I wanted to share on this site. Please leave a comment below if you like. I would like to expand on how I take videos and I want to show different viewpoints while filming video’s.

Ideas and Thoughts for Posts

Some sunlight on some trees and tops of shrubs in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

I have had in the past some and many thoughts about topics to post on this site and when I would sit down to write these ideas – they come across as half-baked thoughts, ideas. I would start writing down these ideas and I would get to a point where I would pause to consider where I could continue on with the thoughts for the post but I wouldn’t past this one point. I would leave these posts as drafts and or I would cut these posts completely.

I would toy with these thoughts for a few days or for some time and majority of the time I would just abandon the post ideas completely. These ideas would be half-baked at best and they would just be a waste of words and space on this blog and in general.

I took this in the late afternoon and very early evening in September 2014.

Though, I’ve wanted to share a fair amount of photographs that I took in 2014 and 2014. For some reason I’m would, having some lack of follow through about uploading photographs that I took. Part of the problem is that I don’t want to go through and update all the meta data that’s included in the Photographs that I took during this time. I know I could and can use Adobe Bridge to do this with a bunch of photographs at one time and I want to wait until I have more computer memory installed before I update and change the meta data on lot of photographs.

You could some of the photographs that I took as featured images or inserted in posts during the last year or so. Getting back on topic – I want to write real posts or short of a length of page while working in a document for a class but I seem to come up short on more positive topics to write about. If I write a good lengthy post that it seems a negative type of post which I’m tired of writing and thinking about doing; or I could be complaining or sound like that I’m complaining in some way.
